LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Nice!!! Sounds like you had a great time, and it's really cool that you had original artwork to show him! If you want to send me the photo I can add it to Flickr and post for you (if you're comfortable with that). I'll pm you my e-mail address. I have to admit I'm a bit jealous. It looks like the convention was huge! And well attended... I hear Dirk had the biggest lines there too. Same deal in Phoenix last year.

Perfect John (although he might be IN Europe right now...)
Bought tickets anyway as it is official announced by the Comiccon website and the BIG Dutch newspapers.

Yes, agree. Zilfstar, please do share your experience! And congrats. I've decided I'm happy for you, and not extremely jealous.

John, I can understand why Dirk sometimes fails to confirm appearances. If I had his travel schedule, I think I'd forget my own name...

Ask him about Kamikaze Cowboy Kitchens. Tell him his Dirkettes are waiting to assist ..........and then report back what he says. Viel Glück.

Zilfstar, did you ask him about KCK? I'm curious as to his reaction.
